New signing already happier at Aston Villa than former club

Aston Villa signed Scott Sinclair from Manchester City on loan for the rest of the season.

Aston Villa's new signing Scott Sinclair has told the club's official site that he is delighted to feel part of a team again after completing a loan move to Villa Park. 

Sinclair has been peripheral at Manchester City, making just 12 appearances in two and a half years with the current Premier League champions, but he is set to play a prominent role for Paul Lambert's side until the end of the season.

It is something that has immediately increased his enjoyment and he says that he can't wait to get settled in at his new club. 

"For me, it's about being part of something here," Sinclair said. "If you're not playing - as I wasn't at Man City - it can sometimes feel like you're not part of something.

"I feel so happy coming here. It's a new challenge for me and I'm looking forward to it."

Sinclair made his Villa debut in their 5-0 defeat to Arsenal last weekend, but even that horror show hasn't put him off the move. 

The Claret and Blue will be relying on him to hit top form. Sinclair's attacking threat will be key for the side as they look to escape the drop. 

At the moment Lambert's side are the lowest scorers in the Football League, with their total standing at just 11 goals in 23 matches.

It is a shocking statistic which highlights exactly where the problem lies at the club and if things do not improve in this regard Championship football next season looks a real possibility.
